My Rocky Mountain Juniper was avaialable at Nature's Way Nursery in Harrisburg starting 2008. In 2013 Mauro Stemberger styled it there in a demo. My student Brian had the guts to purchase it and the skills to edit it for winning the show. Congratulations to all.
A well known European bonsai master since years spreads the word 'it is impossible to ever make a good bonsai of Rocky Mountain Juniper'. How come this tree wins the show? And it was not even the best juniper from Nature's Way Nursery,
